The wife of a police officer who was injured during the pursuit of the Boston Marathon bombers claims she was touched inappropriately by former Vice President Joe Biden during a 2014 ceremony to remember the bombing.
Kim Donohue made the allegations in two separate Facebook posts, one of which has been deleted, according to the Washington Examiner. Donohue said Biden rubbed her lower back, made suggestive comments toward her, and asked her to ride in the car with him to the ceremony.
“Couldn’t get out of that car fast enough”
Donohue said that Biden made comments to her about her appearance. “Look at those eyes, where did you get those eyes? Anyone else as good looking as you in that family … those eyes are mesmerizing, people must just do whatever you say,” Biden said, according to Donohue.
Donohue said Biden pushed aside her husband, Massachusetts police officer Dic Donohue, to ask her to ride in the car with him to the ceremony. Donohue said she rode with her husband and Biden in the car, describing it as “the most uncomfortable 3 person car ride I have ever been in.”
“I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough, I practically dove into the pavement,” she wrote in the post’s comments.
In a deleted post from 2016, Donohue said Biden also touched her inappropriately. He “greeted me by rubbing my back in an inappropriate and uncomfortable way,” she recounted.
When reached for comment, Donohue confirmed she wrote the posts but would not comment further, according to the Examiner.
Media covers for Biden
Donohue is one more woman on a growing list who have accused Biden of inappropriate behavior, from unwelcome touching to even an accusation of sexual assault, the Examiner reported.
The media has been reluctant to talk to Biden’s accusers and has largely ignored them. For example, a recent interview with Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Biden of sexually assaulting her while he was a senator in 1993, was only aired on CBS News’ Australian version of 60 Minutes despite there being much more relevance to the interview in the United States.
In a tweet from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Sunday, he called this fact “the most complete indictment of media bias ever.”
This is the most complete indictment of media bias ever.
Why does CBS think voters in…Australia need to know about these serious charges against Biden, but not voters in…America (where he’s actually on the ballot)?

There is no question that if the allegations from Donohue, Reade, or anyone else were against a Republican, the media would be covering it non-stop.
